    I've been trying to get the bb maps function to work and have been unsucessful. It's listed in the application list, but won't activate anywhere. I even tried to re-load bb maps from the web, but I got an error message saying my device is not compatible. I'm running v4.7.0.65 (platform 4.0.0.82). I loaded google maps and it says the gps function is not available. Any help would be appreciated.

    Turn your gps location to ON in the advanced options.

    don't go off of google maps, google maps doesn't use the GPS function yet.

    and if it says you're not compatible that means its already installed in your applications folder. Have you tried running it? It takes a while to sync with the satellites and you have to be outside

    I'll try again. I don't really [I]need[I] it, but I would like to be able to play around with it. If I ever do need it I don't want to have to pay for VZNavigator.

    You can always re-download it in the application store. All the apps that came on it will always be in there


    as for google maps, thats a great tool and once it syncs with the GPS everyone will have it
